National Library of Australia launches new and improved Trove, the digital collection of Australia

(27 Jun 2020) From the Canberran Times: 

More than 3000 Australians contributed to a new and improved Trove system, which was unveiled after four years of work.

The federal government announced a further $8 million for the project to support its ongoing development over the next two years, in addition to the $16 million already provided.

Trove may be just 10 years old, but it houses billions of historical resources, dating back hundreds of years.

The National Library’s collaboration with partner institutions allowed Trove to provide its collections of digitised newspapers, books, magazines, oral history, maps and images.

All of this is free to search on Trove from anywhere in the world, and one third of Trove visitors are from outside Australia.
